New-style fun and friendly Mexican Cooking
Being from Texas, it may seem one is almost required to like Mexican cooking. I have to admit I love it and could eat Mexican food pretty much everyday. Now you might be thinking the food from Mexico is just different ways of combining tortillas, cheese, meat and beans. If this is your opinion, I invite you to get a copy of “Taqueria: New-style fun and friendly Mexican Cooking”. This wonderful cookbook written by Paul Wilson show lots of new ways to make your tastes buds say Está buenísimo (It tastes delicious). While there are not pictures of each recipe, the ones that are there depict sumptuous delights. Some of my favorite recipes include: Wild Mushrooms in Mexican Salsa Verde, Pasilla Chili Relish, Pork Carnitas with Pineapple Adobo Sauce and Coffee Margarita.
- Latin Larder
- Flavour Fiestas
- Guacomole, Salads and vegetables
- Margartitas and More
Taqueria is an homage to the best of Mexican cuisine. Across four chapters (Flavor Fiestas; Salsas, Salads & Vegetables, Taqueria and Margaritas & More), it is a crash course in cooking the food of Latin America right. Its emphasis is on taking the building blocks and showing people that, with quality ingredients, attitude and a little application, they can create an authentic, standout feast.
In total, it includes more than 80 recipes, with prominence for a winning Taqueria chapter – with recipes ranging from corn, prawn and bacon tortillas to homemade chorizo and sweet potato quesadillas. As well, the salsas, salads & vegetables chapter recognizes the ever-growing appreciation for plant-based dishes with a 20-plus recipe line-up of envelope-pushing vegetarian dishes (as well as a nod to the near universal love of guacamole in its myriad iterations).
The package is loud, punchy and a little bit retro with bold colors that will especially speak to people who have visited, or are familiar, with Taqueria’s of street-side Mexico.
